to utilize single stream
Greenstar North America will be the first
recycler to provide single stream recycling services in Houston.
Single stream is an innovation in recycling that allows participants
to put recyclables conveniently into one bin.
Greenstar has helped cities across Texas increase their recycling
rates with the convenience of single stream – 300 percent in
Dallas, 200 percent in San Antonio and 75 percent in Austin.
Houston is poised for growth and Greenstar expects recycling
rates to increase once single stream is available.
Greenstar is upgrading its existing facility in Northwest Houston
and has a long history of providing recycling services with operations
dating back to the 1970s. The facility upgrades will include
technologies to automate sorting so materials end up cleanly
separated, baled and ready for sale as inputs into new products.
